Excellent view, poorly maintained.

  • 4 of 5

Wow, I have never rented at Tripp with such a fabulous view of the ocean!

That being said, the property has been neglected.

The dishwasher did not work at all, the toilet wouldn't flush, the bath didn't drain, the laundry room light did not work, there was low to no lighting in the bedrooms (would like to be able to read a book), there were dirty window screens in my bedroom closet, and the floor in the second bathroom has tiles that are coming off. Really? For around $500 per night I would expect accommodations that are perfectly in order.

Yes, the description is off. There is no king bed. A queen bed in each of the 2 bedrooms. When I brought this up to the property manager, she simply said "Oh yeah. Well, we'll get to it.". I didn't feel like she would.

The unit is nicely decorated. I really liked that we had strong, quality beach chairs included in the room. The deck is lovely to sit on and wash the waves. The pool is literally located just off the property. Very private.

We love Fripp Island; been coming for years; will definitely revisit.

Amazing View!

  • 4 of 5

Fripp is a destination getaway to literally “get away” from your hectic daily life and simply relax and enjoy the island’s overall beauty and tranquility. As soon as you drive over the bridge and stop at the security gate you realize you have just arrived at a magical destination.

North Hampton Villas is an incredible location on the island overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Being a second floor, end unit, the view of the Atlantic Ocean is spectacular. Looking over the private pool, you are so close to the ocean you can literally throw a football off your deck and land it in the salt water. When we arrived we realized immediately the pictures from the web listing were outdated; the décor of the unit is updated with a more modern vibe of gray and purple tones. The new sectional couch is amazing. The tv is high end but only connected to basic cable, no HD and very limited channels. The unit is managed by a management company on the island which is a plus. One negative however was we had a problem getting into the unit when we first arrived; the pass code to unlock the door did not work. Fortunately we called in time and they were able to send over a service technician in about 15 minutes.

Another disappointment, there is no king size bed as advertised. The Map location linked to the unit through the website is wrong as well. It really is Ocean View versus an inland marsh/ low country view. Keep in mind that everything on Fripp Island is owned and operated by Fripp Island Resort. That means you even need an amenity card to eat at any restaurant. Fortunately, the property owner is a member of the resort and is able to get guest amenity cards for your stay. This should be a deal breaker for you as a guest of any Fripp Island property. Without the amenity card you cannot access anything; pools, tennis, golf, restaurants.

Pros:

Plenty of space in two bedroom two bathroom unit

Ocean View

Private pool with outdoor shower

Full size washer/ dryer

Sectional sofa

Amenity cards

Onsite management company

Cons:

Tiny kitchen

No HD, basic cable

No free wireless

Small deck

No king bed

No golf cart charging stations

Gas grill does not work

Limited beach access within walking distance (bring your bikes)

Yes, I would rent this unit again. The view alone is worth the stay.
